Thoughtful, informative, practical

Ever since I discovered this podcast last summer I have been smitten. The episodes cover diverse subject areas and feature renowned guests. Best of all, the hosts are themselves veteran clinicians who thoughtfully and artfully guide the conversation, modeling the same motivational interviewing techniques discussed in the episodes. I look forward to every new episode I have the fortune to hear.

KayJosie ,

So helpful

As a student studying for her national board as a health & wellness coach. As well as looking back on why I was successful when I was successful as a medical massage therapist.

saramariemara ,

So helpful!

Love the broad scope of this podcast and really diving deep into various topics that aren’t often included in base trainings on MI (eg, self-compassion). I am a therapist, MINT member, and most importantly, ongoing MI learner, and am finding this so engaging and informative. Thank you for your work!
